Fogarty has good offensive skills and a big body, which he uses well along the boards and in front of the net. A decent skater, he will need to improve his stride to move to the next level, but he is solid two-way forward, with decent hands.
Fogarty made his pro debut in April 2016 with the AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack following his four-year college career at the University of Notre Dame. A team captain in each of his final two seasons with the Fighting Irish, Fogarty projects as a solid two-way center man who can provide some offensive support while playing a responsible game in all three zones of the ice. He will likely spend the bulk of the 2016-17 season at the AHL level making the adjustment from college to pro hockey.
